Cars 2: Rev up your moviegoing engines

* * * * *

If your kids loved the first Cars flick, they (and you) are sure to get a kick out of the movie's sequel from Pixar Animation Studios. Owen Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy (or rather, their voices) are back as the race car and tow truck duo Lightning McQueen and Mater respectively.

Like a true action flick, but one that's been made to be kid-friendly, the film takes viewers around the world to exciting destinations like Tokyo, London, Paris and the Italian Riviera and features thrilling chase scenes. It's definitely a movie that will delight your visual senses. Car-lovin' dads will especially appreciate the animated versions of Mini Coopers, Rolls-Royces and Fiats. And all parents can rest assured that the kiddies will leave the theatre having learned a wholesome lesson about loyalty and friendship. This is a movie you'll want to put down as a fun family outing for a rainy day.

Sliders and our personal fave, Trouble, where it's a thrilling race to see who gets into Victory Lane first. Just like the original version, we have to be careful where we move. If we crash into an opponent, we can send them back home, but they can do the same to us.
